The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) is
developing a resolution project due to the threat coming from the
Metsamor nuclear power plant in Armenia, APA reports.

Samed Seidov, chairman of the Committee for International Links of
the Azerbaijani Parliament and head of the Azerbaijani delegation
to PACE, said that the document states that Azerbaijan and other
countries recognize the nuclear power plant as a threat, inspired by
the tragedy in Japan.

The deputy said that the power plant was built using old Soviet
technology in a zone with high seismological risks and that Armenia
cannot maintain the nuclear power plant due to its economic problems.
